Event description

Time Machine is an exhilarating work of physics and force, dance and Extreme Action that will entertain audiences of all ages.

Extreme Action, a new art form invented by award-winning performer Elizabeth Streb, takes choreography beyond dance to defy gravity and pushes the human body to its limits. Using prototypic ‘Action Machines’ that move with and against them, her dancers become ‘Action Heroes’ who thrill, scare and delight their audiences.
Since Elizabeth Streb founded STREB EXTREME ACTION in 1985, the company has travelled from the heights of the experimental dance world to the cutting-edge of popular entertainment with performances known worldwide for their “unflinching explorations of physics” (The New York Times). Their spectacles around the world have provided many jaw-dropping moments, including the finale of their One Extraordinary Day series for the 2012 Olympics, where the dancers performed 120 metres in the air on the spokes of the London Eye.

STREB EXTREME ACTION come to Adelaide for the very first time with this breathtaking journey through Elizabeth Streb’s extraordinary career.

Time Machine is presented by arrangement with Arts Projects Australia.
